The exhibition also features artwork from Romy Kaa and her series "Persona", 2012/2013 (Germany): Child, parent, grandparent – these are the central roles life offers us. How we meet these obligations and what happens when we switch roles or reject the traditional family model are among the questions Berlin artist Romy Kaa asks in her photo series "Persona". The photograher, her mother and her daughter pose in different situations and assume different roles. This surreal staging plays with conventional photographic genres, and challenges our conventional definitions of age, identity and family ties. Even as we are meeting the demands of certain social roles, we carry other roles within us that we could also adopt. Romy Kaa lives and works as a freelance photographer in Berlin, where she studied at the Ostkreuz School of Photography. For more, see www.romykaa.de.
